Abstract

SUMMARY

Broth cultures of 24 out of 28 urease-positive strains of tested lysed readily when mitomycin C (MC) was added early in the logarithmic phase of growth. Toxigenic strains of the species were more susceptible than the non-toxigenic strains to the effect of the drug. Phage-like particles with different morphologies could be obtained from cultures of all of five strains studied. The lytic agent or agents active on freeze-thawed cells of strains were also found in the MC lysates.
